10:03pm
wife. toilets made life on the ship difficult. >> monday and tuesday were really, really bad. everybody was using buckets to do what they had to do. >> the triumph set out last thursday, but that changed when an engine fire knocked out power. conditions deteriorated quickly. >> the really bad part was that there was no running water in toilets for almost the first 30 hours. once they finally did get running water, only in certain places. i would say it's the worst smell imaginable. >> carnival ceo showed up personally to apologize. >> we pride ourselves in providing our guests with a great vacation experience and clearly, we failed in this particular case. >> carnival arranged for buses to carry passengers from the terminal to new orleans or houston in galveston, texas, but family members say carnival
10:04pm
shouldn't be surprised. carnival will take two to three hours to get everyone off their ship. bringing an end to vacation most would rather forget. >> that was randall pinkston in mobile, alabama. breaking news in san leandro, a large-scale man hunt is underway right now. he assaulted a police officer as he was being arrested. we're told the suspect has handcuffs on one hand and was last seen running along the bank of the creek. he is wearing blue jeans and a white t-shirt. police say ringthe scuffle, an officer fell back and hit his head on the pavement. neighbors of the man police say threatened to kill a state senator were literally living next to a ticking time bomb. police say the santa clara man had the means to do it, based on what the bomb squad found today.
10:05pm
investigators have been combing the suspect's house for days now and kpix5 reporter tells us the disturbing discovery just didn't stop. kit. >> liz, it has been a tense and nerve racking three days as these crews have been going room to room sifting through junk that piled four feet high, looking for bombs. they think they are 70 to 80 percent done. today, we got a few more glimpses of what is looking more and more like a bomb factory. >> yeah. you know, it could have hurt a will lot of people here. >> there were chemicals. but this is the game changer. the bomb squad wore helmets and protective vests as they placed a destructive device inside a chamber. the bomb techs sealed it, drove it away, and blew it up. >> unlike the substance they found earlier in this investigation, which were incomplete, those actual items
10:06pm
were complete and they were ready to use. >> home belongs to everett. investigators say he e-mailed a death threat to state senator, leeland yee, who introduced gun control legislation. on tuesday, a s.w.a.t. team raided his home. crews found and detonated some materials, and confiscated at least two assault weapons. they spent the past three days picking through clutter piled chest high, never knowing what they'll find. >> when i'm in there, the only thing on my mind is, what is under that box or what's in that drawer? >> he also wore military fatigues and has had surveillance cameras for years. neighbors say he was an exentric wreck loose. >> i'm glad he's in jail and they can keep him there and put him somewhere else far, far away. >> and he will be arraigned in court tomorrow on charges of making a threat against a public official and also other weapons charges. he also used to work for apple

10:11pm
>> we don't use these types of devices for surveillance or gathering intell on civilian activity. so they are used to gather intelligence from the scene of a mission specific exercise we are deployed to. >> the public protection committee is considering the sheriff drone proposal, but hasn't reached a decision. coming up, taking smash and grab robberies to an aggressive extreme. what some bay area thieves are doing now to get to the stuff they are trying to steal. >> i hate, hate, hate valentine's day. >> and no love for the holiday of the heart. how the single and unattached suffer through the day. if you love, love, love 70- degree temperatures, hang out over the next 24 hours. if you love rain fall, things are changing in the extended forecast. i have something for you as well. bay bridge looks nice tonight.
